Default Is Powder Coating A Viable Option

Has anyone powder coated a stickburner?

I emailed a couple places for some quotes and got one back that doesn't seem to bad for a hi temp bbq black powder coating.

Looking for any advice/input on the pro's and con's for powder coating.

I have been following your build thread. Out of curiosity, can you divulge what the estimate was?

I was already planning on having it sandblasted and his estimate on that was $150 - $200, which is inline with the other sandblasting quotes that I've received.

His quote for the hi temp bbq black powder coat was $180. My main reason for considering either having it painted or powder coated is, by the time I buy the the equipment and paint to do it, I will likely be into it around $150 bucks.

If I decide to go this route I will detail it in the build thread!

do you normally cook low and slow or hot and fast? to be on the safe side probably 500-700 degrees.

I think the temp rating on the bbq powder coating is 1200 degrees. I usually cook between 225 - 350, just depends on what I am cooking.

Thanks for the help!

I guess the key to good powder coating is the metal preparation which has to be damn near perfect to get any kind of durability. My Onyx Oven has powder coat and was beautiful when new. One year later and it looks like ****. Little rust spots coming through from underneath the coating. Touch up would be much easier with just plain black paint.

Do you think that has anything to do with it being thinner metal?

Default my experience Power Coat

Here ia a before and after of my home made Smoker I wraped the fireboxes with Stainless steel (because of the high heat), that is them on the bottom. First time posting photos!

I run low and slow with a target temperature of 250. Right above the fire box on the bottom round of the smoker it get very hot. I am not sure of that temperature one day I will need to check but at that point if I run a clean cloth along that area it want to cling to the smoker. Anywhere else the cloth just glides.

I have had 30 or so events with this Smoker and just love the power coat. I would say it depends on what temperatures you will be running your Smoker at.

I was thinking they baked the power coat somewhere in the 400 degree range but not sure. I think the cling of cloth is probably at a range of 325 but not sure. In my opinion you would need to stay well below the temperature that they bake the power coat at.

This has been my experience with power coating hope it helps.

Don

Powder coating is absolutely a good option. However, it is all about the prep of the metal prior to the paint application. I used to supervise a powder coat line for a large international corporation. We had to do daily chemical analysis of our five stage prep tanks and adjust the chemicals as needed. We also had to do paint samples periodically and send them to a UL approved lab for salt spray tests. In these labs they would scratch the painted sample down to the metal and hang it in a salt spray chamber. The sample would be monitored until failure when the scratch rusted out to a certain width. We had to pass a 600 hour test. We experimented with a sealer in the final stage and exceeded 1000 hours but then the company decided to send the manufacturing of our product to Mexico. Prior to sending the business to Mexico, they looked at outsourcing the powder coat operation. We found a source to do the painting but they failed salt spray tests 3 times so we didn't go that route.
